It's time to Spring into action and do some selling! The Harbortown Rotary 2021 Cash Raffle has officially begun!! With the increased number of tickets and prizes this year, we are asking members to sell a minimum of 4 tickets each. However, to sell all of our tickets we need to average selling 7.5 tickets per member, so get creative and have some fun selling these tickets!
 
 
Your envelope with tickets will be available for in person pickup at all our in-person Wednesday club meetings at the Holiday Inn. Otherwise you can swing by and visit Goldy behind the US Bank on Michigan Street or at the Kolquist, Seitz & Goldman offices located on the 9th floor of the US Bank Building at 130 West Superior Street.
 
For ticket pick up contact Greg in advance 218-340-1688 or 218-336-1523, and don’t be shy to ask for more than 4 tickets!
 
A recent email was sent with some awesome templates to assist you with your sales efforts; including:
Feel free to use the templates, or let your creative juices flow and make the sales pitch your own! Our goal is to have every ticket sold and turned in with all cash by June 15th, 2021. Please coordinate with your team captain, Tony Hansen or Greg Goldman if you need more tickets. Captains will be asked to check in occasionally to help encourage their team’s sales efforts, assist in collecting ticket stubs and redistributing tickets if members need more.
 
Thank you all for your help, and I am excited to see the club come together to make this the biggest and best cash raffle fundraiser yet!
Almost a dozen Rotarians along with several families members joined forces and provided some much-needed support to the Lincoln Park branch of the Boys & Girls Club. Everyone chipped in to help with building shelves for food and snacks, deep cleaning the gym and art supply area, organized some rooms and decorations and broke down a lot of cardboard. Thank you to all who participated in brightening the day of the students and staff at B&GC!

During the last week of March, Dan Holm, Pat Finney and Jinell Abernathy did their annual shopping trip to complete four move-in kits for clients of Life House who will be moving into a new apartment.
 
The kits were furnished with cleaning supplies, cooking utensils, pots, pans, cups, plates and silverware. Thank you Life House for supporting our area youth and our Rotarians for their annual shopping trip for these very needed care packages!

For most of us, 2020 went down as memorable with some aspects truly challenging and other aspects richly rewarding in opportunities to serve and connect! As we start the New Year, our District Conference Committee, with the support of District Executives, has determined that due to the uncertainty of the safety of large group gatherings, the 2021 Rotary District Conference will be held virtually. We are hopeful that health officials will allow us to incorporate locally held in-person events in conjunction with the virtual district-wide meeting. 
 
Going virtual also allows a change of format using an approach similar to the Virtual RI 2020 Convention and makes our district conference accessible for ALL Rotarians in D5580. Our genuine hope is to have a very high percentage of our 2,550+ Rotarians joining in.  The plan is to expand the conference from three days to six days but limit the presentation and networking times to specific times each day, providing optimum opportunity for Rotarians to participate. 
 
Everyone on the planning committee is excited to deliver a truly outstanding conference and make it accessible to every Rotarian in District 5580. We already have some fantastic speakers lined up and cannot wait to share the agenda with you!
